Satellite communications provider ITC Global has been awarded a three year contract by offshore support vessel operator Harkand for the provision of broadband connectivity for mission critical voice, video and data applications on vessels operating in the Gulf of Mexico, the North Sea, Africa and Asia Pacific.

ITC Global says it has built a private end-to-end satellite-based network, tailored to the unique applications of Harkand, which include real-time video support for undersea Remote Operated Vehicles (ROVs), as well as crew communications.

The network provides connectivity to several Harkand vessels, including the Swordfish, Viking Poseidon, and Spearfish.

These vessels perform a wide variety of missions including acting as bases for ROVs, surveys, providing manned saturation diving capabilities, and installation and repair of jumpers, umbilicals and other deep sea infrastructure.

"Communications are critical to providing streaming video for our ROVs," said Jim Parker, vice president Group Marine Assets at Harkand.

"ITC Global takes a proactive approach to recommending innovative designs that improve the quality and cost effectiveness of our service. We have come to take for granted how well ITC Global’s services work."
